HawkPad is Here for the Honeycomb Manufacturing Industry

Posted by Sioux Rubber & Urethane Team on Dec 3, 2020 2:32:26 PM

Honeycomb cardboard is used as protective packaging for items as small as household appliances, and as large as temporary building structures. Honeycomb cardboard is made of kraft paper that is shaped into hexagonal cells and glued together to form a board. Then, firm cardboard is attached to both sides of the honeycomb like a sandwich. Using the honeycomb paper between the two firmer boards creates high tensile strength, which is ideal for the transportation of appliances and other large items that need to be protected. This product has to be measured and cut using 50 to 100-ton presses, and the die-cutting process must be strong, precise, and resilient. With the HawkPad by Sioux Rubber and Urethane, manufacturers of honeycomb cardboard are able to make a high-quality product that lasts longer and saves money.
